Kit Winter Wonders by Callaluna Creations

Good Morning all! I am having a great morning, and I hope you all are enjoying your weekend as much as I am!

Today, I am here to talk a little bit more about other great kit from Callaluna Creations, which you can find in its Southern Comfort Scraps Store, and is 50% off for the next few days! It´s called Winter Wonders. I am definitelly not a winter person, and winter here, is, in fact, very different from Europe and US: It´s cold, but we don´t have snow. It´s mostly dry, although in the mid-winter we get 2 or 3 weeks of non-stop rain, that can be very thick and annoying, or turn in storms. It´s gray all around, and the only good thing are the strawberries that become easily found in the markets. It´s mostly gray, although in the last weeks its possible to hear the birds start singing in early morning, and some trees full of yellow flowers.

Despite of this differences, however, I loved the colors on this kit, specially the tan and the dark purple. Take a look on the preview to see what I´m talking about:

Can you see the birdie? Is my favorite part of the kit. It aso has lots of other elements, and a frosty alpha that is awesome. You could already see some parts of the kit on this layout I showed you on our last post:

Today, I wanna show you how the papers are in detail - there are lots of cool papers on this kit - note that the glitters come in full 12x12 paper size:

I found in my stash a picture I took in 2010 that suited perfectly for this color palette, and made another layout, using lots of the papers found in the pack. I had great fun making this layout, which I scraplifted from this one, and hope you like it as much as I did:

To know more about Winter Wonders kit, check this post on Callaluna Creations blog. It has a funny story there, and other great layout examples, it´s totally worth the visit!

Two layouts using Callaluna Creation´s kits

I´d like to thank you all for the warm reception my last freebie is having, and I hope you are having a great week. Today, I´m posting to show you, my last creations with Callaluna Creation´s kits.

The first one I made using a kit I already talked about in this blog (here): It´s called Love Bites, the official release is here, and you can purchase it here (and it´s 50% off, so enjoy). My page is about my husband making crazy faces when I try to take romantic pictures:

The second page for today is from a soon-to-be-released kit, with a winter theme and lots of purple and teal. As I never saw snow, I used a cheat code for this page: I downloaded this picture from to make the page:

In my opinion, this bird is super cute! To make the banner behind the title, I just made little rectangles and used some of the glitters that are included in the kit.

Curious about this kit? When it comes up officially, I´ll let you know!

SNP Blogtrain Freebie - Morning Fresh

Hello everybody, welcome to SNP blog train. You probably came from the fantastic Keystone Scraps (well, If you didn´t, I´d still sugest you to go there and take a look on the blog).This is my first time participating on SNP blog train, and this month´s theme is Morning Fresh. I made some assorted papers, elements, and, as I am planning on starting Project Life someday, I also made 4 journal cards on the smaller PL´s size. I made a sample layout with this kit using a template from Fit 2 be Scrapped to show you some of the elements:

Kit Love Bites by Callaluna Creations

I´ve know Callaluna Creations for blog train freebies for a while, so, when it´s owner, Heather, joined us on Pixel Scrapper community, I already knew a bit about her. For me, getting to know designers is still a bit new, they are kind of celebrities on my mind - guess everyone that already tried to make a kit knows how its hard!
 When I saw this layout she posted on her gallery, I was quite impressed, for the deep, dark shades of red and purple, and the beautiful flowers:

When I saw the full kit preview, I was even more inpressed: It´s a fun, cativating (but yet depressive) work, really "outside the box" for the themes you use to see on digital scrapbook kits:

(If you can´t wait to have this kit, just jump over Callaluna Creations store)

It´s a very nice, easy to work with when you start. Both papers and elements match nicely, and It´s very fun t  o tear your own virtual photos with the template included on the kit. It also includes some styles for photoshop and two alphas. Well, let me show you what I made with this kit. Its a sad story, that really happened in real life:

What do you feel when you see this layout? My husband said he felt piety of the poor stuffed kitty - but I tried to be a bit funny with this...

Well, back to the topic: Callaluna Creations just opened a store, and, it means opening sales ;) This kit is not on the store yet, but will be in one or two days. I think it´s totally worthy. Please visit Heather´s store, clicking here.

I am preparing a little surprise for my readers, so stay tuned ;)
